After a decade of domination of the Fiat Uno, its replacement the Fiat Punto logically takes the relay, becoming Italy’s best selling car in 1994.

This is more than 3 times the volume of the Uno which still manages to hold onto the second place this year with 79,074 units sold and 4.7% share. The Ford Fiesta drops 27% and one spot to 78,803 sales and #3, ahead of the Fiat Cinquecento, stable at #4 and 4.4% and the Lancia Y10, up 2 spots to #5 and 4%.
Notice the Opel Astra gain two spots also to #7, the Opel Corsa entering the Top 10 at #8, the Renault Twingo slicing its ranking in 2 compared to 1993, up 14 spots to #14, the Ford Mondeo up 8 to #16, the Lancia Delta up 12 to #17 thanks to the new generation of the model on sale since late 1993, the Citroen ZX up 13 to #23, the Mercedes C-Class up 23 to #27 for its first full year of sales and the Renault Laguna landing at #36.
